ARCHOS Announces Ice Cream Sandwich for G9 Tablets, Coming First Week of February

A bit of news worth pulling out of our booth visit to ARCHOS has everything to do with Ice Cream Sandwich. The update is headed to their 10-inch G9 tablets, with a launch currently penned in for the first week of February. The upgrade from Android 3.2 to 4.0 will apply to the currently available generation of the tablet as well as the newly announced 1.5GHz dual-core CPU upgrade.

    And when do the original Archos tablets get it? Or 3.x? Or even 2.3? We are still stuck with 2.2, Archos treats it’s (first) customers bad. Never buy an Archos, after sales is rubbish.

      Google TOLD consumers to hold on until HONEYCOMB was released as this was exclusively for tablets. OEM’s in their rush to grab some market share released products not ready for prime time.

    lol your experience may be bad but mine is quite not bad at all.  I don’t even know why you’re expecting ICS for the older generation.  If a Samsung Galaxy won’t be getting it then why should Archos older gen be getting it.  

    Unless they promised further updates on the older devices they don’t have to update anything.  2.2 is Froyo and 2.3 is Gingerbread.  They are a total different version of an operating system.

    I wish every Archos product I’ve bought didn’t have a faulty hard drive.  I love having such high capacity in a tablet.
